At my core, I am an artist. What I have come to appreciate about that is the medium doesn’t matter.
I’ve gone through phases of being immersed in the fine arts - have created paintings, sculptures, have written books of poetry and short essays, and then music: sitar, piano, cello, erhu, and the healing arts: yoga, massage, therapy.
It doesn’t have to be paint on a paintbrush. Whatever I ever get very involved and invested in, I can create art with that. Cooking, yoga photography, yoga classes and trainings, clothing design, martial arts, gardening, my relationships, home design, my body - I can create art in excellence with all of that.
Even if I got into something currently outside my interest bubble like mathematics or history, because I am an artist I can create beauty and meaning with that because that is my nature.
You don’t have to stick with just one way of expressing yourself as an artist - your life will give you your tools and mediums to play with, and you will naturally infuse art into all you do and create.
There is beauty to be found and cultivated everywhere you are.
